Nurse and Soldier was born from the ashes of the influential but little-heard band of Ohio rock savages Karaoke Hustler, a loosely-assorted bunch of raucous glam rockers seeking to purge their souls of all but the most incendiary rock and roll.
To this heritage of noisy disarray Nurse and Soldier adds a penchant for short, sweet pop songs, which audiences have described as "great". A 6-cut eponymous EP of these songs was released in May 1999 on Brooklyn's Trifectaa Records.
Nurse and Soldier is a major player in a sometimes-noticed Brooklyn cultural revolution that includes improvisational noise technicians Men, sleaze-rock band Oneida and country crooners Crazee and Heaven.
